Strowbridge Building, 1977

The 1875 Strowbridge Building is one of Portland’s cast-iron success stories. The wave of destruction of these buildings in the 1940s through the early 1970s spared the Strowbridge despite obvious signs of disrepair and a disastrous ground floor remodel seen here. Today it stands beautifully restored on the corner of SW 1st and Yamhill.
